11 Random Facts!

I love early mornings, I hate bad manners, I once set off an alarm in a NT House, I love cats (especially the neglected ones!), I hate slugs, I love the smell of bonfires, I practice yoga, when I start laughing I find it hard to stop, I love Christmas, I love long walks, I don't like heights!


Now the 11 questions set by Mrs H.

1. Radio 1/Classic FM?

Definitely Classic Fm! Although its mainly Radio 2 I tune into!

2. Favourite tipple?

Red wine, full bodied and fruity!

3. What super-power would you have?

To restore health! That way I could bring Mum back!

4. All time favourite song?

This one's hard as I love so many! Foreigners 'I want to know what love is' is Mr B and my song, it was number 1 when we started dating! Cheesy or what! Mr B denies this, of course!

5. Perfect Sunday?

Get up early, (yes, I know!), pack up a picnic, head into Derbyshire for a long walk with my family! Have a drink in a lovely pub, arrive home, then Mr Bea cooks a lovely roast dinner. Friends over in the evening, glass of wine, then snuggle up to watch Downton Abbey!

6. Tea/Coffee?

Strong Black Coffee! Yum!

7. If you could invite anyone for dinner, who would it be?

My Dad, he died before my youngest was born, and I would love them to meet each other! Mum, of course, would have her restored health, so she would know who we all were. When you're together as a family, you think it's always going to be like that, it's only when things change, that you realise how precious those times were!

8. Best piece of advice?

Well two bits really, Mum always said 'just be yourself, everyone else's taken!' and Dad always told me 'just try your best Love, that's all I ask!'

9. What would you do with one million pounds?

Hold a big blog party for all my followers, we would have workshops to inspire us, lovely food, wine, and of course stay in an exclusive country house! There would be lots of laughter and fun!

10. What one word describes you?


11. What infuriates you?

At the moment, it's monsters, who take children away from their families.


My 11 Questions are:

What's on your bedside table?

What's on the top of you wardrobe? ( being nosey, was what caused me to set off the alarm!)

Happiest memory?

Favourite toy as a child, or adult?

Your perfect holiday destination?

Spring or Autumn?

What's your moto, number one rule, you live your life by!

If you had a time machine, what year would you like to land in?

Roast dinner or fish and chips?
What makes you 'belly laugh'?

Favourite outfit, past or present?
